Born in Leeds, Dan started racing karts in 2003. Dan quickly then progressed to single seaters and in 2013 won every race (24 of 24) of the British Formula Ford Championship to take the title. He then moved to Porsche Carrera cup in 2014, wining back to back Championships in 2015 and 2016.

Dan Yuassa

Matt began his career in a BTCC support race for the British Grand Prix in 1991 driving a BMW M3. Since then he has gone to be one of the most successful BTCC drivers in the history of the sport, being one of the only 5 drivers to ever win 3 BTCC Championship titles. Matt first made history in 1991 by becoming the first independent driver ever to win a race outright and collected a Coll 250,000 cheque in the process. In 2005 Matt piloted his Halfords Sponsored Honda Integra Type R to his first Drivers Championship and then claimed back to back Championships in 2006, another record feat!
